Finland

Finland is a country of contrasting seasons, crisp clean air, forests, lakes and thousands upon thousands of saunas. During the long summers months when the sun never sets, Helsinki is alive with performing arts festivals whilst the vast countryside remains largely undiscovered by tourists. During the long dark winters Finland is paradise for cross-country skiing… becoming a snowy wonderland.

Naturally if you want to sample some wonderful Finnish golf courses you will need to visit between the months of May and September. The Finns were late in realising their love for golf and in the early 1980s they had just a mere handful of courses to choose from. Today there are more than 100 courses and in excess of 100,000 affiliated Finnish golfers. We think Finland is a golfing nation keep a watchful eye upon.

Our rankings of the Top 30 Golf Courses of Finland were last updated in January 2016. Click the link to read the story.
